Brief Summary:

Objective: This study aimed to investigate the effects of regular exercising on scapular muscle endurance and shoulder pain in young individuals.

Methods: Participants' clinical and sociodemographic properties recorded, scapular muscle endurance assessed with Scapular Muscular Endurance (SME) test, and shoulder pain severity questioned using the Visual Analogue Scale.


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Musculoskeletal Pain Disorder Sport Injury Other: EXERCİSE Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

Background: Serratus Anterior and Trapezius muscles are the most important stabilizers of the scapulothoracic joint. The inadequate endurance of these muscles plays an important role in the decreased neuromuscular performance.

Objective: This study aimed to investigate the effects of regular exercising on scapular muscle endurance and shoulder pain in young individuals.

Methods: Participants' clinical and sociodemographic properties recorded, scapular muscle endurance assessed with Scapular Muscular Endurance (SME) test, and shoulder pain severity questioned using the Visual Analogue Scale.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 200 participants
Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Intervention Model Description: In total, 200 individuals aged between 17-25 years, who had no neurological and orthopedic problems participated. Individuals who had surgical stabilization, previous shoulder complex fractures, positive impingement test results, and systemic diseases were excluded. Participants were categorized into the Regular Exercising (n = 100) and Sedentary (n = 100) Groups. The young adults who were using the fitness center by their preference (unprofessional), and who were regularly exercising, were included in the Regular Exercising Group. The volunteer young adults who were not exercising were included in the Sedentary Group. All participants gave written-informed consent before participation, and the study protocol conformed to the standards for human experiments set by the Declaration of Helsinki and was approved by Ethics Committee for Human Investigations of Mustafa Kemal University Ethics Committee (4298783/05022/4).
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: The Effect of Regular Exercising on Shoulder Pain and Scapular Endurance

Arm Intervention/treatment
The Scapular Muscles Endurance (SME
The Scapular Muscles Endurance (SME) test was used to assess the endurance of the Serratus Anterior muscles.
Other: EXERCİSE
EXERCISE FOR HEALTH AND PAIN IMPROVEMENT

Vizual Analog Scale
The VAS for pain, measures pain severity in the affected shoulder from 0 to 10 points, with 0 points representing no pain at all and 10 points representing pain as bad as it can be
Other: EXERCİSE
EXERCISE FOR HEALTH AND PAIN IMPROVEMENT




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The Scapular Muscles Endurance (SME) test [ Time Frame: Evaluation was done at the first meeting with the participants. ]
    The Scapular Muscles Endurance (SME) test was used to assess the endurance of the Serratus Anterior muscles. For this test, the participant stood against the wall with their shoulders and elbows flexed to 900. There was no contact between the participant's arms and the wall. The subjects then held a green elastic exercise band (with a resistance of 2.3 kg, when stretched 100%), and an adjustable ruler was placed between their elbows to maintain the test position. While both scapulae were neutrally positioned, the participant was then asked to externally rotate the shoulders and to maintain this force for as long as they could hold and the holding duration was recorded in second. The test was ended when the participant was unable to maintain the resistance and dropped the adjustable ruler, failed to maintain 900 of shoulder flexion, or reported an unacceptable increase in discomfort (Edmondston et al. 2008).

  2. Vizual Analog Scale [ Time Frame: Evaluation was done at the first meeting with the participants. ]
    measures pain severity in the affected shoulder from 0 to 10 points, with 0 points representing no pain at all and 10 points representing pain as bad as it can be
